OneNote + Microsoft Surface = Superior Experience

I rarely write reviews, but after I decided to buy a Surface Pro instead of a Mac (first Windows machine after 10 loyal years with Apple), I got to try OneNote and changed the way I manage my memories, boosted my productivity and creativity!
I canceled my Evernote subscription (another three years) and migrated to OneNote. So why am I so excited about it? Here are highlights:
- PEN! You can use the surface pen to draw or handwrite and the experience is just flawless. I know use OneNote to make handwritten notes during the video conferencing;
- You can easily convert your handwriting to the regular text with one click. And I love to handwrite as I memorize stuff better;
- Organizing images, spreadsheets, handwritten text is very easy and intuitive;
- shared lists are very well done;

I think OneNote is the leader in the space!

Missing Something But Amazing

I like the way microsoft organized this app and how it is accessible with the same features on all platforms. But Microsoft team show focus a lot on improving the handwriting.

1- one sheet for a note : i prefer small pages like class-book and i can create many pages under the same page. Good Notes has this feature and i hope Microsoft do it for all users too.
3-option to remove title of note and write the name of the note under section tab. You can also provide to insert the date or time as option under insert menu.
4- automatic full screen during typing.
5- nebo notes has feature to clear the text by scratch it. It will be amazing and faster.
